What are service references?

Service References are abstractions for a service that a SIS composition invokes at runtime. The service can be either:

  • local — bound to a SLEE service that runs in the same SLEE as the SIS

  • external — bound to an external platform, where the SIS holds configuration information (parameters of the external platform, such as SSN or PC) for forwarding requests; an (arbitrary) external component provides the actual external service to call — which can be a SLEE service within some other Rhino instance, but may also be (for example) a simulator or a Signalware backend.

Viewing service references in VIA

Each project shown in the SIS View contains a service references category, which lists all the service references in the project.


Each entry here appears as an entry in the service reference dropdown list for configuring a Service element in a composition diagram.
